The already all-powerful 2nd team of SNH48 has just formally admitted a new, 8th-generation member today, whose credentials are as follows:

- Started playing the piano at 4.5 y.o.
- Studied classical music at a secondary school affiliated to the state-established/run Central Music Academy.
- Majored in both composing & vocal rendition at the Berklee College of Music in the States, & graduated after completing the four-year course there in just two years, i.e. half of the time.

More info about her, w/ a number of her private pics (click to view them in their original large sizes), on this page of a Japanese fansite:

http://snh48.info/2017/09/12237/

^ Even that Japanese fan running the site queries what she's doing there in the group. XD

^ Some additional remarks & corrections on those credentials:

Rika-Chicchi wrote:

Her studies there were focused on vocal rendition.

Quote:
- Majored in both composing & vocal rendition at the Berklee College of Music in the States, & graduated after completing the four-year course there in just two years, i.e. half of the time.

Her double majors there were jazz music composing & modern music production.

It's according to her profile on her blog, screencapped in this article posted on that Japanese fansite today:

http://snh48.info/2017/09/12242/

^ BTW, her current hairstyle looks like Hotaru's. :)

[EDIT]
A pic of the group ace of SNH48 shot on the set of a historical production, posted by herself tonight:

http://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/dab20f8dly1 ... 34vqvc.jpg

^ She dubs that hairstyle as "Mickey head." XD

[Re: The former part of the preceding post] And according to her profile on their official site, her specialties include composing of jazz music, production of pop music, opera singing, English language, piano, copywriting, sax, & viola, & she has an English name Julie - I think they could totally hire her as a (senior) staff, if not even a trainee exec, but guess she'd like to get the feel of working as an idol 1st. lol

Like what I've mentioned here in the past, there're some "over-qualified" group members from their later generations. :)

The 2nd trailer of a latest drama set in present day & starring her - it's rare to see her doing dramas/movies set in present day:



[EDIT 1]
The soundtrack of BEJ48's current latest single, released today:



[EDIT 2]
^ Another nice one, of a number in GNZ48's current latest autumn EP, rendered by their 2nd team & released yesterday:

A number in a new stage of GNZ48's 3rd team performed during their debut performance of that stage today:



[EDIT]
[Re: The preceding post] A Japanese fansite has dug up some materials from her past & found that she can conduct a big band, too, :oh: among others - here's a brief article on that, w/ a couple of YouTube clips (the latter one shows her conducting a big band), posted there today:

http://snh48.info/2017/09/12312/

^ It also mentions that her English given name used while studying in the States was Cyclone (what a name! :ohmy: ), instead of Julie, her current one stated in her profile on their official site.

A C-pop number of a Taiwanese diva & then a famous single of SKE48 covered by a member of GNZ48's 3rd team (w/ several teammates for the former song) at the team's theater performance tonight - the Chinese lyrics of the latter song is written by herself, & that MV featuring herself & being shown while she was rendering it is also produced by herself: :cool:


The whole MV itself:


She's been formally appointed as the captain of the team during a theater performance of the team today (the deputy captain of the team was also appointed at the same time - both positions have long been vacant ever since the forming of the team). :)

A prominent member of SHY48's 1st team chose to don an ancient costume, complete w/ a make-up being chic back then, in the team's phototaking & album signing event today:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 2ai7wj.jpg

^ She looks just like an ancient woman having come thru a time tunnel to the present day. :cool:

A hot gif from a theater performance of SNH48's 1st team today, in which a boyish looking 2nd-generation member (albeit briefly lol ) gets a feel of the butt of a 1st-generation one, who's the top vocalist of the team as well as a talented graphic artist/designer, w/ a full, sexy body too :cool: (the woman in her mid-20s is also the oldest member of the team as well as the entire group, & among all the SNHG groups too):

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/dab1e49bly ... 0eme87.gif

[EDIT]
^ Ah, that gif, taken from a live broadcast of that theater performance, was posted by that boyish member after that - to boast her success in groping the older member (h/e brief it was)? XD And as a bonus, here's another one, posted by her HAWT partner:

http://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/b5d6e209gy1 ... 0emkjt.gif

^ Apparently she's got a harem w/i the team: :o



^ That young schoolgirl, who's a newbie member in the team, being included is a bit objectionable, tho. XD

[EDIT 1]
The 1st, approx.-12-min. instalment of a documentary on the SNHG General Election final results announcement concert held earlier, produced by a major Korean production company, wholly narrated in English, & released on that company's official YouTube channel yesterday - highly recommended:



To be fair, the content of the documentary can't be said to be entirely neutral, as that company has already been partially acquired by the management company of SNHG, :P but it's still pretty informative &, most importantly, can give you a 1st-hand, on-the-ground authentic feel of the event. :)

[EDIT 2]
^ Ah, besides the concert itself, the documentary will also cover the large-scale, SNHG-wide vote-thanking event on the next couple of days of the concert in its later instalments.

The 3rd team of SNH48 is currently in deep, multiple troubles/crises, which's also caused the group's official blogger(s) to post much fewer entries in the past couple of days or so, since they're busy in combing the tons of responses on the net. I don't feel like detailing those troubles here, nor have I got the time to do so anyway, so for those who'd like to know about it & can read Japanese/Chinese, here's an article detailing it & posted on a Japanese fansite today:

http://snh48.info/2017/09/12363/

I feel sad for the team's captain & only recently appointed deputy captain (even the latter has got a trouble of her own at present!) :( - hope the team under their leadership will eventually overcome it & climb out from the pit. *sigh*

^ For those who'd like to follow the members of that team during these times, here's an official list of them, w/ all the pics being clickable to their respective official HPs (scroll down to the heading "H队-TEAM HII") - the team is currently the largest among all the five ones of SNH48, BTW:

http://www.snh48.com/member_list.html

As the matters are still evolving, no official announcements concerned, if any, have been issued yet, & as of writing the above-linked list also hasn't been amended yet.

The title of the theme can be translated as "Thinking of You." :)

^ Ah, that theme is also one of the non-title numbers in her current latest solo EP. :)

A few glimpses of the exclusive theater of CKG48 currently under construction, posted by their official blogger today:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006P1U2ngy ... 4txqv5.jpg

The group is currently recruiting their 2nd-generation members, even tho their 1st-generation ones haven't debuted yet. :oh:

[EDIT 1]
The awesome captain of SNH48's mighty 2nd team becoming a mechanic (in heels XD ) in a CM for an auto parts supplies chain: :cool:

http://p.weibo.com/show/channerWbH5/103 ... 29f0920e06

[EDIT 2]
A trailer of an upcoming movie starring four prominent members of BEJ48:



And stills of those four & the male lead ( lol ) from that movie:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/006VWdClly ... 3h0kjn.jpg

^ From top, excluding the male lead: the pretty mature captain of their 2nd team, the uber cool "fashion queen" of the same team, the young ace of the same team who's the movie's female lead (&, yeah, is still a U-18 kid, just as her look suggests lol ), & the gorgeous ace of their 3rd team.

[EDIT 3]
^ A fan-made promotion video comprising various past footage of that energetic kid:

Like her younger looking but actually older (albeit by just a lil bit lol ) twin sister in that same team (who's the captain of the team, BTW), she's also a pro acrobat. :)
